Wanted - composite tandem sea kayak

Post by Kevin Cooper » Mon Aug 13, 2018 10:05 pm

As per title.

NDK Triton - 2 piece only

Nelo Waterman

Mega Bandit

Not keen on the Aleut 11, although not paddled one!

What else is there?

Composite only, not plastic.

You could consider a Tahe marine tandem midi, we've owned one foe about five years now.

Thanks for the replies, I will look at the epic site, have a friend with an rx solo boat who enjoys it.

I’ve looked at the Tahe mid and looks a bit wide around the cockpit for my liking. I recognise reviews report good stability and reasonable speed, my tandem partner is only 150cm tall with short reach so a bit worried about the cockpit volume. I’ve not seen one though so maybe in the flesh it doesn’t look so squat. It almost looks like a topo duo in Ariel profile!

Open minded and happy to sonsider all options.

Thanks

Hi Kevin, yes it is a bit on the wide side around the cockpit. My paddling partner measures around 160cms and has a very short reach and has no issues with it. It is surprisingly quick an manoeuvrable an the cockpits although large are very comfortable. If you're near the Midlands, you're welcome to try it.

Thanks for the offer to try, I may take you up on that. Of course secondhand ones don’t appear often for those either but it would increase chances of finding a boat if I was considering more than one model!

Especially keen to hear of any Triton 2 piece and now also keen on the tahe mid!

Still happy to consider others.
